Hi to all of the Design Dazzle Fans! I’m Melanie from Artzy Creations & I’m so excited to be back and to be part of the “Christmas Wonderful Series”. Today I’m sharing with you a great craft that you and your kids can create for the holidays. Nothing says winter, holidays, and Christmas like snowmen. I’ve seen snowmen made out of just about anything. But, I thought… wouldn’t it be fun and easy to make some out of Mason jar lids.
- Glossy White Spray Paint
- Mason Jar Lids (Small or Large)
- Black and Orange Acrylic paint
- Pom Pom Trim Optional
- Hot Glue
- Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: Spray paint the top of the Mason jar lids with the white spray paint. Let them dry thoroughly.
Step 2: Using black acrylic paint, paint the eyes and mouth
Step 3: Using orange acrylic paint, paint the carrot for the nose.
Step 4: Attach pom poms by hot gluing them to the back of the lid. Work quickly because the hot glue will dry fast once it’s on the lid.
Step 5: Use ribbon to make a loop. Hot glue the ends of the ribbon together and attach the loop to the back or the front of the snowman depending on what look you like.
It’s so simple and easy. Yet, so much fun for the entire family. After making these two, I think I will have to make one for each person in the family.
These are just too cute for words! Have fun making them.
